538: Already Dreading Your Abusive Brother's Wedding | Feedback Friday

It's not a request; it's a demand from the brother who sexually abused you when you were eight in a family that gaslighted you about the whole thing: "You will speak at my wedding." Maybe he thinks you're too spineless to say anything that will embarrass him, but the truth is that you've been diagnosed with complex PTSD and the thought of speaking at his wedding at all fills you with dread. On the other hand, being the only sibling to refuse would also cause drama you don't want to deal with. How do you balance being genuine with not calling someone a cruel person on their wedding day? We'll try to find an answer to this and more here on Feedback Friday. And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger ( [@JordanHarbinger] (https://twitter.com/JordanHarbinger) ) and Gabriel Mizrahi ( [@GabeMizrahi] (https://twitter.com/GabeMizrahi) ) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

[Thanks to clinical psychologist [Dr. Erin Margolis] (https://mythrivepsychology.com/erin-margolis) for helping us with this one!]</li> <li>If you have a physical feature that might surprise someone you're meeting for the first time (like, say, type IV radial club hand), how can you put everyone at ease and defuse any potential awkwardness ahead of such a meeting?</li> <li>In spite of going above and beyond in your leadership role during the pandemic, your boss "doesn't believe" in giving you a 5/5 star rating on your review because there's always room for improvement. On the other hand, you've been criticized for giving a subordinate a 3/5 for meeting expectations. If 4/5 is the best you can expect for exceeding expectations, how is such a system fair for anyone?</li> <li>Your dad spent 10 years in prison. You'd enjoy making up for that lost time by watching movies and other low-key activities together, but he wants to party and go bar hopping (even though you're under the legal drinking age).

What We Discuss with Julia Galef: ---How to spot bad arguments and faulty thinking -- even when the source is you. ---The difference between having a soldier mindset that defends whatever you want to be true, and a scout mindset that's motivated to seek out the truth regardless of how unpleasant it might be (and which you should try to cultivate). ---How to tell if you're making reasonable mistakes or foolhardy leaps of faith that carry consequences far outweighing the value of the lesson. ---The best ways to manage and respond to uncertainty. ---How your brain matches arguments you misunderstand with ones you've already decided you don't agree with -- and what to do about it. ---And much more...

535: Should Siblings Unite to Confront Abusive Parents? | Feedback Friday

You and your five siblings aren't close, but you all have one thing in common: you endured a childhood marred by abusive parents who played you against each other. Now that you're all adults, you'd like to unite your siblings to confront your parents as a group for some closure -- but you're not sure they're all on board with the idea. Is there a good way to convince them, or might it be possible to get the closure you're looking for without their help or even a confrontation at all? We'll get into this and more here on Feedback Friday! And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger ( [@JordanHarbinger] (https://twitter.com/JordanHarbinger) ) and Gabriel Mizrahi ( [@GabeMizrahi] (https://twitter.com/GabeMizrahi) ) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week!

[Thanks to clinical psychologist [Dr. Erin Margolis] (https://mythrivepsychology.com/erin-margolis) for helping us with this one!]</li> <li>You've postponed your wedding twice due to the pandemic, but two very close people in your life have passed away in the interim -- and it's hard to imagine having this wedding without them. Is there a way to somehow include and honor them in the ceremony?</li> <li>As a middle manager, you rely on your second-in-command to lead the department so you can focus on admin. Unfortunately, he fails at every step and creates more work for you than he saves. He can't be fired, transferred, or demoted, and he refuses to improve. What can you do?</li> <li>You're a teenager living in a household with your father and a verbally abusive stepmom who doesn't like teens. You'd prefer to live with your biological mother, but the custody agreement as it stands wouldn't allow it. How can you convince your dad and stepmother that changing the agreement would be the right move for everyone?</li> <li>You consider your current sales job as a placeholder until you can get your master's degree in mental health counseling. The hitch is that your program requires your completion of a nine-month internship that would fall during your busy season in two years. What's the least awkward way of bringing this up to your boss -- who doesn't yet know about your aspirations in a completely different field?</li> <li>Have any questions, comments, or stories you'd like to share with us?

His latest book, [Effortless: Make It Easier to Do What Matters Most] (https://www.amazon.com/Effortless-Make-Easier-What-Matters/dp/0593135644/?tag=jordanharbing-20) , is out now. What We Discuss with Greg McKeown: ---If you want 10x the results of any endeavor without putting in 10x the effort, it's important to understand your ROE (return on effort). ---How the disciplined pursuit of less keeps you from getting overwhelmed with unexpected options and opportunities that come from what should be the good news of success. ---Why, if you find yourself procrastinating on a project because it's not perfect enough to your liking, you should delay a bad first draft and create a truly awful zero draft. ---Why "easy" does not (always) equal "lazy" and what you can do to work smarter rather than harder to avoid earning the meaningless badge of honor that burnout has become in the modern workforce. ---Five questions to ask yourself before taking on a project that's in danger of being overthought, overwhelming, and anything but effortless. ---And much more...

What We Discuss with Tristan Harris: ---Why we're worth more to social engagement platforms as manipulatable slabs of predictable human behavior than as free-thinking individuals. ---How the social networks of the early 2000s so quickly turned from places where we could keep in touch with friends, family, and colleagues into disinformation amplifiers that contribute to the destabilization of democracies. ---Why your algorithm-tailored online experience so radically differs from that of your closest friends and loved ones, and why this is a problem when the public good is cast aside in the interest of keeping us engaged and enraged. ---The unintended consequences of allowing an algorithm to bring people together by what it sees as similar interests, and how this has thrown fuel on the disinformation fire. ---How attempting to outthink a social media algorithm is like trying to play chess against a computer that can look ahead and counter every move you could possibly make. ---And much more...
